A linguistic mystery [May. 22nd, 2006|10:32 pm]

Some time ago, something happened to my browser at work, and now, whenever it encounters greek letters, instead of displaying them normally (that is, as greek letters), it displays them in some weird mystery alphabet. I went trolling through various webpages trying to identify it, but to no avail.

So I'm wondering: does anyone know what lanaguage this is? And for special bonus points, can you tell my why my browser (Firefox, running on linux) has decided that it likes this alphabet better than the normal Greek one, and how I might persuade it to change its mind back?

And if nobody can identify it, well, here, at least I can give you some entertainment: look at this wacky alphabet!

As for fixing it, have you tried Tools - Options - General - Fonts and Colors - Fonts For: Greek to check the settings?

The options menus are structured differently, but I checked and my Greek language font is set to "serif", just like all the others...
